Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

(Hebrews 11:1–3)


To run with God, you’re going to have to run by faith. Hebrews, chapter 11 is called the “Hall of Faith,” and every person who was singled out for believing and acting on the Word of God walked by faith. God wants your name in the Hall of Faith. He wants you right alongside of Abraham and Enoch and Joseph and Elijah. Each of them had a different calling, a different faith challenge, but they all chose to believe God and walk and live by faith.

If you want your healing to manifest in your life, you’re going to have to start talking like God. You’re going to have to start walking like God. You’re going to have to start thinking like God. If not, you’re going to have a very frustrating life. Why? Because God is going to have you calling things that be not as though they were. That’s how God functions. That’s how He taught Abraham to function.

All natural hope may be gone. Your body’s symptoms may tell you it’s too late. Physicians may give you an evil report. Statistics may tell you, you haven’t got a chance. But God said by His stripes you are healed (Isaiah 53:5). He’s got the last word. Romans 4:18 says of Abraham, “Who against (natural) hope believed in hope, that he might become…according to that which was spoken…”

If you want to “become” according to what God has spoken about your health, hope in God’s Word. Let your faith give substance to that hope, and be the evidence that your healing exists.


Say this out loud with me, “My name’s going in God’s Hall of Faith. I choose to walk by faith, look beyond the symptoms, and hope in God’s Word for my total healing and divine health, in Jesus’ Name.”
